benefits. we have asked experts to join us for a fiscal cliff roundtable discussion, if you will. ron brownstein is a senior -- cnn senior political analyst and editorial director of the national journal and stephen moore, senior economics writer at the "wall street journal" and is in washington, d.c. first up, ron, will, do you think, these politicians reach a deal or not and why or why not? >> the fiscal cliff was yeelted as a doomsday machine to try to give them more will power to do what they can't do on their own, to reach a deal. the reason all of this was here, incentive to reach a deal, some of your guests pointed out during the day, a lot can go wrong when you leave is it to this late, a little little surprising to me republicans don't feel urgency, talk about this in a minute, maybe, the wolf on the other side of the cliff, difficult for both sides, the country is worse for the republicans than the democrats. it's possible they make a deal, possible they go over, no more precision than that. >> are we thelma and luiz, rocketing towards that canyon? >> took the words out of m

turn to mr. ron claiborne. >> good morning, everyone. >>> u.s. forces in afghanistan have helped repel an attack on a joint u.s./afghan base. taliban suicide bombers assaulted the jalalabad early this morning. detonating two vehicles packed with explosives and striking a gun battle that lasted two hours. all of the attackers were killed. two civilians were also killed. four afghan troupes were also killed. no u.s. troops were injured. >>> and new details this morning on that deadly bus crash at miami international airport. two people were killed when a religious group's bus slammed into an eight-foot-high overpass because the driver took a wrong turn. mark greenblatt is here with the latest details. >> reporter: good morning, ron. as many as three people are clinging to life this morning after that crash in miami. just one of thousands of bus crashes that we found happening every year in the u.s., leaving a long trail of injuries and worse. >> just very bloody. everybody had cuts and scrapes. >> reporter: the entire front of this bus, caved in and the ceiling collapsed, injuring more t
. he is the leader, the ramrod of all those right wing challenges. he put up ron johnson to beat mitch mcconnell because he's too liberal. he's leaving, quitting his senate seat, giving it up, to run the heritage foundation. we have other stuff coming up, but let's start with that. >> first of all, he's going to make a lot more money. ed fuelner, who is leaving, makes $1 million a year. demint has a net worth of $40,000. secondly, the leadership has tried to rein him in. they've said, you can't go out and go after these conservative republicans with really conservative republicans in primaries because you're setting us up to lose senate seats. now that he's out of there, he can become a kind of cross between grover norquist and the jim demint he always was. he can drive these hard right ideas, but he can also sponsor hard right candidates in republican primaries. i think he thinks he's going to be more important at the heritage foundation than he is in the senate. >> let me ask you about that, john. it looks to me not just -- the money is always a draw for some people, i'm not sure it
primary, giuliani, ron paul and the others, if this guy didn't want to be president. he pushed ron paul's delegate out of congress to push him out of the nomination. he did everything he could to become president and he failed. >> richard, does no one in the romney family have any kind of ear for what honesty sounds like? >> well, i'm not sure if they know what humanity looks like. you know, they said the romney sons say they cannot think of a poe person who wants to be president less than their father. i suggest they meet more people, because there's a lot of people who don't want to be president, and here's the paradox that runs through the entire romney campaign, which is you had somebody desperate to be president and who was deathly uncomfortable to be a candidate for president. you can't message over it, it's not about the 370,000 votes they lament were not theirs and would have won them the election. only 370,000 votes. if you're al gore and you lose an election by an ex krus ating close margin, then you have the right to lament the margin of defeat. but 370,000 votes is not a slo
conservative leaders in the house. here now to try to make this weak case is ron meyer. ron, first of all, i want to say that i commend john boehner for his valiant attempts to stop the fiscal cliff and to make a deal without giving up growth principles. but when you say conservatives don't support boehner, what is eric cantor, what is paul ryan? what is jeb henesling if he's not a conservative? what is tom price if he's not a conservative? what exactly are you smoking? the top conservatives in the house support boehner. >> well, i actually don't think that somebody like tom price would if he has his choice of who he could pick out of everyone. we should have the power of self-determination. we shouldn't get seniority decide, this person should be the next person -- >> look. he is running the house. he's the speaker of the house. you confuse that with running the conservative movement. >> well, then why don't you come out and say, we shouldn't raise taxes. boehner came out and said we should raise taxes. >> i think boehner is doing the best he can to prevent marginal tax rates from rising. i

to tony blair, we're talking to democratic congressman xavier becerra, republican senator ron johnson from the state of wisconsin, also pat houston, whitney houston's sister-in-law and manager and jeopardy champion ken jennings written a new book. it's tuesday, december 4th, "starting point" begins right now. >>> welcome everybody, you're watching "starting point." we're honored this morning to have the former british prime minister tony blair with us as our guest. he's going to be weighing in as a number of topics. we're going to talk about the fiscal cliff, we're going to talk about the global economy. we're going to talk about the civil war in syria. we'll talk about the royal baby coming soon. first we want to get right to zoraida sambolin for an update on the day's top stories. >> soledad, the fiscal cliff debacle, with 28 days remaining before drastic tax hikes and spending cuts take effect, a republican spending plan has been rejected by the white house. brianna keilar is live from washington. what now, brianna? >> well, right now it's about the pressure building and the clock kicki
in and say, ron, why did you buy so much of that stock in the final ten minutes? he would report, because i like it. i already own it. you see how much i like it because i own it. that was the primary defense. you haven't seen a great many big prosecutions in this area. interestingly enough, one of the areas that they did, oh, about 25 years ago, prosecute some folks on was running a options portfolio. they marked the stock up to make the options more attractive so they got a bigger bonus from their firm. >> they closed the stock on the strike too, right, art? >> absolutely. >> the options owners wouldn't make any money. >> that's right. >> are you expecting, ron, that we're going to see various sort of techniques at year end to make the portfolios look better? >> i think now that this has become so public with "the wall street journal" article, it focuses on the movement of very thinly traded stocks. one thing to watch out for is they don't invest in this microcap world that is so easily pushed around. they were talking about one stock in the article that had a market value of $36 million.
will be signing when it reaches his desk likely tomorrow. joining me now nbc's ron mott live in lansing. ron, what is the latest, and how did this come to a head so quickly in michigan? >> reporter: it came together very quickly, andrea. good day to you. it's a cold day out here, but these folks are very fired up. they don't like the way that this legislation was pushed through the statehouse here. they believe that this was a republican strategy to go through a lame-duck session. they know they've got a little more democratic leaning legislature coming here next month, and they figure that this was the most opportune time to push this legislation through. a very small window of time to actually debate the issue, and then as you mention, tomorrow governor snyder is expected to sign this into law, making michigan the 24th right to work state. i spoke with the head of the chamber here in michigan just a few moments ago. he says that this is actually not only good for the worker, but also employers. this is going to make michigan a little more pro-business, that there are a lot of projects on the hor
, if he gets it through congress, he gains a little bit more leverage to have a bigger discussion. >> ron insana, isn't it interesting that this market is expecting a deal so much? >> yeah. >> even when we had both sides digging in. at the end of the day, money moves into equities as if investors are saying there's no way these guys won't do a deal by december 31? >> maria, so much different than what we saw last year in 2011 when the debt ceiling debacle took place. the market appears to be looking through this and seeing through all the posturing and making the bet that the deal, as you say, will get done. i like to go with the cumulative which is do. markets, the message of the markets, however you want to characterize it and think that somebody knows something a little bit better than i do on this one and, hence, they are discounting a positive rather than a negative outcome. >> yeah, for sure. bill stone, how are you allocating money in the face of all of this? >> i think you have to think about how it plays out in the end which we believe you get a deal. don't run away from in terms
. to put is simply, it's been a bit sloppy. >>> up next, arizona congressman ron barber. he was wounded when a gunman opened fire on gabby giffords nearly two years ago. now what he's saying about gun control and the precarious nature of the fiscal cliff talks. >>> plus, a high honor for the late senator daniel inouye. >>> 11:45 this morning we expect the president and vice president to go to the brady press briefing room to announce the process for a response to gun violence in this country. you're watching "the daily rundown" only on msnbc. ♪ i'd like to thank eating right, whole grain, multigrain cheerios! mom, are those my jeans?

deep sbeer his own shortcomings as a father. ron foreign yeah on the pain and promise of personal journalism. i'm howard kurtz and this is "reliable sources." -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >>> the most memorable moment on sunday night football took place during halftime. the game aired one day after that shocking tragedy in which kansas city chief's linebacker javon belcher allegedly shot himself and hids girlfriend and nbc sforts caster bob costas decided to dough vote his talking to guns. his own feelings were quite clear. >> you want some actual perspective on this? well, a bit of it comes from the kansas city based righter jason wit lock with whom i do not always agree but today said it so well that we may as well quote or pair phrase from the end of his article. our current gun culture, wit lock wrote, ensures that more and more domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy, but here, wrote jason wit lock, is what i believe. if javon belcher didn't possess a gun, he and kasandra perkins would both be alive today. >> gun control critics quickly declared war on cos
's senior political analyst ron bram's team. thank you both for coming in. ron, you wrote an interesting column, i just read it, in the national journal about democrats having a more unified coalition after the election in november. what sort of negotiating advantage is that supposed to give them in the fiscal cliff situation. >> i think it's almost the inverse of what we saw in 2010 after big democratic losses in that election. the caucus was divided in the house and senate on whether to extend the bush tax cuts for everyone. republicans were unified, they insisted it be extended for everyone. president obama ultimately made a deal to extend them as you know, for two years for all taxpayers, which is how we are where we are now. democrats are virtually in lock step showing cracks, saying maybe we need to extend for those in the middle. it's a different circumstance. i think the leverage on the tax side, at least is clearly with the democrats, stalemates mean the tax cuts expired and democrats are more willing to live with that than republicans are. >> when you read between the lines her
is not decimated. >> so joining us now are cnn contributor and democratic strategist lena cardona and ron barjean. is it me or does it appear that john mccain becomes more grumpy over time? he's like the neighbor, the guy when you put the ball in the neighbor's yard and he's like, hey, get out of my yard, kid. am i wrong with that? am i the only one who notices that, john? >> well, this is ron -- >> ron, i'm sorry. >> no, i think senator mccain makes some very good points about susan rice, and i think he's clearly frustrated about her comments that were made. i think he's frustrated about the fact she came to capitol hill and wasn't able to convince him nor lindsey graham or senator susan collins that she would be a good nominee to be secretary of state. so, you know, i think that's what you're hearing in his voice right now is a lot of frustration. >> i'm not only talking about this particular issue. we're going to get into the meat of that, but i'm talking about other issues, fiscal cliff and on and on and on. it just appears that way. lena, you heard some people talking about civil leaders wit
this with wisconsin republican senator and budget committee member ron johnson. senator johnson, i just want to read off a couple to you. i just love this. $60 billion bill. $8 million for cars and furniture for the fbi. $150 million for salmon fishing, $57 million to clean up tsunami debris from 2011, $336 million for the amtrak program that's never been done. what is going on here? the people in new york who are still suffering need direct assistance. none of this is direct assistance. >> hello, larry. of course what's going on is business as usual here in washington. listen, i think there's bipartisan support to realize that this is emergency. we want to get money flowing to the people that need it. but let's get some information. let's not create a christmas tree here and load it up with all kinds of different ornaments. let's take a look at what the true need is, short term and then longer term. and let's do this in a measured fashion. so from my standpoint, i think it makes an awful lot of sense. we've got nine months left till fiscal year 2013. that's kind of the line of demarcation. we shoul
for the spending habits of those with a higher tax bill. joining me now a ron weiner. once again our own robert frank also joining the conversation. great to see you guys. thank you so much for joining us. you say it won't impact spending habits. if the rich see their rates go higher, you don't think it will impact what they spend their money on. >> i don't think it will impact their lifestyle at all. in fact, the only time my wealthy clients high net worth clients when their spending habits are affected are when their portfolios are down during any given week. i don't think it'll effect their spending habits whatsoever. >> i agree with you. we're focused so much on the ordinary income tax rates. but aren't the investment taxes much more impactful. the tax on cap gains. >> i agree. they are worrisome. that's why many clients are on the sidelines and don't want to do anything. they wanted to buy into a year end rally but they're hesitant. when you don't know the playing rules especially when there's so much disorganization in washington, there's no reason for the client to get involved. but when

of newtown, we are with you today and in the weeks and months ahead that was the word today from ron barber, who was shot and wounded in the mass shooting in tucson last year that killed six people and wounded 13, including the grievous wounding of congresswoman gabby giffords. ron barber, who took gabby giffords' seat in congress after she stepped down to deal with her injuries. he said today, as those of us in tucson know, senseless acts such as these tear at the very fabric of a community. mark kelly, gabby giffords' husband said today i just spoke with gabby, and she sends her prayers from tucson. in oak creek, wisconsin, where four months ago this was another mass shooting at a sikh temple, another six people gunned down at that temple. a school superintendent there today told the local press that she cried when she heard the news out of newtown, connecticut. she said we always think it can't happen here, and we pray fervently that it won't. but as we know from our experience this summer, kit happen anywhere. the mayor of aurora, colorado, is still helping his community try to recover

. the president called speaker boehner, my congressional add aides are going to meet with your people. what ron neighbors said tell us what you want after you agree to rates. the white house thought that was an accommodating conversation. the republicans interpreted that as seeking their humiliation. so even within the contours of conversations that are direct and face to face, there are wildly differing interpretations. >> republicans, by the way, know if boehner crosses that bridge, that it could be immediately leaped and get a democratic victory dance on rates without really getting serious on the other side. that's what the lack of trust causes in this process. >> schieffer: i guess in the final analysis, nothing is going to happen until the last minute of the last hour, though, it seems to me. >> and the closer we get to that, the smaller this becomes. by definition. you have to ride it small. it can only be digested quickly. the longer we wait and the closer we get the smaller the scope of the deal is. >> schieffer: i want to-- we can get back to this-- i want to ask you about some of the
